you have to monitor the security event log on the machine for the id:4800 Lock and ID:4801 Unlock
Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Advanced Audit Policy Configuration / System Audit Policies - Local Group Policy Object / Logon/Logoff / Audit Other Logon/Logoff Events

If you're using AppSense no need for a script. Appsense has Locked and Unlocked triggers. Just add actions on these triggers to do whatever you want - you could easily use the Update Text File action to write to a log.
